WordPress 5.0+ began using the newest editor ‘Gutenberg’ to create a page builder directly on your WordPress pages, replacing the older classic editor. While this new editor has been found hard to use and needs a bit more refinement, WP EasyCart does offer ‘blocks’ that can make creating content with your shopping system easier.
Gutenberg blocks are easy to design with and WP EasyCart offers several block methods and tools to create your visual layout. This video discusses how to use Gutenberg blocks in general to create custom product page, add to cart buttons, and more.

The process of creating and using the new page builder tools in Gutenberg is based on ‘blocks’. These blocks are similar to how many theme companies already have advanced page builders. They allow you to add column layouts, quickly add headings, paragraphs, images, video in modular blocks, then rearrange them however you like.
Simply start by adding a new page to WordPress. We will click on the title and add a simple page title. This is used as a page title, and does not display as an actual heading.
Here is where you can add WP EasyCart content. You can look through the various blocks and see you can add layout elements, such as columns or you can add content blocks such as paragraphs, headings, images, or WP EasyCart content.
Now you get to choose what type of EasyCart block you want. You can show a store grid of products filtered by categories, or you can simply throw an add to cart button for a product on your page. It comes down to however you want to design your page.
In this example, I am adding a store grid of products, but I am filtering them by category of ‘Sales’ items. This way only my sale products appear on this page. At this point, I can use this page on my menus or do whatever I like with this page just like a regular WordPress page.
